This homemade toner recipe is a great alternative because it balances the skin’s pH, controlling oil and dryness, and will cost you next to thing!

So if you’re looking for the perfect toner for all skin types, look no further than this homemade toner recipe that will help with a slew of skin problems including:

This recipe uses all natural, organic ingredients, and we encourage you to do the same! The more natural the ingredient is, the more effective it is!

You’ll Need:


  1. For normal/dry skin, we recommend mixing 1/3 part vinegar to 2/3 parts filtered water. Add about 5-10 drops of lavender and frankincense essential oils for every 2 oz of toner if using.
  2. For oily/acne prone skin, mix 1/2 part vinegar and 1/2 part filtered water. Add about 5-10 drops of lavender and frankincense essential oils for every 2 oz of toner if using.
  3. Store the toner in a glass bottle or jar at room temperature.
  4. Use the toner in the morning and at night, after having removed all traces of makeup.

Two questions. 1) How long will this toner last and 2) when you say 1/2 part vinegar and 1/2 part water, what measurement are you speaking of? Cups, ounces teaspoon, tablespoon?

Hi Rona,

The toner will not go bad since it is mainly just water, ACV, and essential oils, so it will last for quite some time! In terms of usage, that all depends on how much you make.

For the measurements, you can use anything you like…whether that be cups, tablespoons, or ounces! A part is not a unit of measurement, but rather a measurement guideline. So 1/2 part vinegar and 1/2 part water means half vinegar and half water. So for example, if you were to make one cup of toner, you would use 1/2 cup of water and 1/2 cup of vinegar.

Hope this helps 🙂
